Our walk today takes us into an area of Perthshire. Kevin Williams suggested this walk and your committee included it in the 2018 Programme. This is a through-walk, so any walkers preferring a shorter walk (shorter alternatives) should stay on the bus and travel through to our pick-up point at Dunkeld and do a walk there. Please discuss this with the person in charge today and make your intentions clear, so that early discussions can take place with the driver.
The walk commences at Kirkmichael (NGR 080 601) where we cross the bridge over the River Ardle. Head southwards on the Cateran Trail for approx. 2km on the west side of the River Ardle until a Scottish Rights of Way signpost to Dunkeld .
